Turn your humble oatmeal porridge into something fancy and gourmet by adding your favourite toppings to make it a super nutritious breakfast option.
For the porridge:
½ cup/120g rolled oats
½ cup/250ml milk of choice
½ cup/250ml of water
Pinch of salt
For the topping:
nuts, honey, peanut butter, berries, chia seeds, chocolate chips, cinnamon
Place all the porridge ingredients into a medium microwavable bowl, stir together and heat in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and place back in the microwave for another 15 seconds, or until the oatmeal is softened. Add some water if it gets too dry and stodgy.
Stove top instructions:
In a small saucepan, bring the water and milk to a boil. Reduce the heat and pour in the oats. Cook for 3-4 minutes and stir with a wooden spoon. When the oats are soft and have absorbed most of the milk and water, remove from the heat, cover the saucepan with a lid and let the porridge stand for 2 minutes before serving it.
Once your porridge is ready, place it in a bowl and accompany it with your favourite toppings, that could be peanut butter and chocolate chips, nuts and honey, or vanilla cream and raisins, you can’t go wrong with any of these combinations!
